Breakfast Success: Egg, Cheese & Ham Bagel

Last night I was determined to follow through on my breakfast menu for today. I was pretty consumed watching playoff hockey, but during intermission I managed, with my wonderful hubby's help, to make the bagel sandwiches.

It worked out great. This morning when I got up I popped one in the microwave for Christian for 40 seconds. While it was heating I cut an orange into wedges and Voila! Breakfast was served.

He gobbled up his sandwich, but never touched his fruit or his milk. Hmmm... I don't want to start the morning out with mommy demanding he eat his fruit so maybe next time I will serve him half a bagel with his fruit to see if he is more inclined to eat the fruit then. :)

And oh, I can't forget about this. I love this little kitchen gadget. It is perfect for frying a perfectly round-shaped egg to fit on a bagel or an english muffin. Yes, it's the little things in life that make me happy. :)

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

My Pinterest Inspired Asian Meal

This is a meal that we had last week that was entirely planned using Pinterest.  Thoe of you who know me well are well aware of my addiction to Pinterest.  Yes, addiction.  It has even been said that I need a Pin-tervention.  :)   I cannot help it though, I not only enjoy looking for recipe this way, but I have found it very helpful in meal planning.  I now even have weekly menu boards created on Pinterest to organize my weekly meal plans.  It has become a great tool.  So I guess you could say that this meal, in a small way, does prove that I actually do make recipes that I find on there. :)   Anyway, I was in the mood for a different kind of bbq meal so I choose to make Asian Grilled Drumsticks, Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw, Tricolor Thai Salad with Zucchini & Yellow Squash, and plain white rice.   Early in the day I put the salads together and because there were so many vegetables it involved a bit of prep work.  Plus l thought it would be a good idea to get the vegetables maridnad…
